The background is simple. Julian Assange, the hacker thought by some to be working for the Russians, leaked DNC emails that show the party greased the skids for Hillary -- no surprise -- but also that Politico and other news organization allowed the DNC and Hillary to edit approve stories.
Fearing that this scandal may cost Hillary the presidency, Will waltzed into the Twilight Zone.
And yes, Will wants her to be president, of this there is no doubt. Will and the DC conservatives want her to win unanimously (as the deputy editorial page editor of the Wall Street Journal put it) so they can take back the party. They are as delusional as Ted Cruz. Nelson Rockefeller did not take back the party after Goldwater's debacle in 1964.
Will is obsessed.
On Fox News, Will went off the deep end:
BRET BAIER: Both the campaign chair and anybody you talk to, including Senator Murphy would not go down that road once pressed on the connection between Russia and the Trump campaign. But they have thrown it out there. George?
GEORGE WILL: Well, it's the sort of thing we might learn if we saw the candidates' tax returns. Perhaps one more reason why we're not seeing his tax returns because he is deeply involved in dealing with Russia oligarchs and others. Whether that's good, bad or indifferent it's probably the reasonable surmise.At some point, a wise person would step back and ask, am I too vested in this race?
Will is smart, not wise.
